Following a Tony Award-winning limited run last season, producers of “Take Me Out” have announced that Bill Heck will play the role of Kippy Sunderstrom for the production’s upcoming return engagement.
Heck was last seen on Broadway in “Cabaret.” His other credits include “Brooklyn Boy” and “Angels in America.”
Also newly announced is that the remount will feature original revival players Michael Oberholtzer, Julian Cihi, Hiram Delgado, Brandon J. Dirden, Carl Lundstedt, Ken Marks, Eduardo Ramos and Tyler Lansing Weaks.
They will join the previously announced Jesse Williams as Darren Lemming and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mason Marzac.
Michael Castillejos, Lance Takeshi, Stephen Wattrus and Tim Wright will serve as understudies.
Performances are set to begin at the Schoenfeld Theatre on Oct. 27 for a 14-week limited engagement.
The role of Kippy Sunderstrom was originated in this production by Patrick J. Adams, who was unable to return this fall.
Written by Richard Greenberg and directed by Scott Ellis, this mounting of “Take Me Out,” first produced this spring by Second Stage Theatre, won 2022 Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Play and Best Featured Actor in a Play for Ferguson.
The return engagement is produced on Broadway by Barry and Fran Weissler.
